Poppa always taught us to use our manners. And momma was the queen of the chicken salad sandwich. So, to honor them, we put them together and got Yes Please Sammies! Once you taste the juicy shredded chicken, tangy red onions, and crunchy celery mixed in a perfectly seasoned and creamy mayo mixture, you’ll understand why we always gave her the polite affirmative to make her hellacious handheld. She always used our favorite kind of bread, so we encourage you to do the same! They are simple, easy, and quick, which is why we loved them and still do. We think you’ll be quite delighted by Yes Please Sammies, too!
